An Ex-Python


We’re very proud to announce that Not The Messiah – a one-man-show about the life of Graham Chapman that we previewed on the Buxton Fringe in 2011 – is going on tour this summer.

A new polished version of the show will be heading to Underground Venues (on the Buxton Fringe) and the Pleasance Courtyard (on the Edinburgh Fringe). It stars award-winning actor George Telfer, reprising his award-nominated role as the only remaining non-living member of Monty Python.

For those of you who didn’t catch the preview, the show tells Chapman’s life through a Pythonesque lens, reimagining his various adventures as Python sketches as he seeks to deal with juggling his medical and comedy careers, his (then illegal) homosexuality and his nealy fatal alcoholism.

Here’s what the press said at our preview:

Telfer’s various characters are mesmerising… nothing short of a revelation.” ***** Fringe Guru

The sort of script that makes me want to see the play again, immediately.” Buxton Fringe

You can catch the finished work at the Buxton Fringe from 11-21 July and on the Edinburgh Fringe from 1-24 August. We hope to see some of you there!
